Drug and alcohol addiction is prevalent in the United States, with the National Institute on Drug Abuse reporting that more than 20 million Americans over the age of 12 have some sort of addiction (other than tobacco). Prescription drug abuse is more common than ever before, and opiate use has also been on the rise in recent years. Addiction is a complex disease that requires individualized treatment for a successful recovery, and the patient must be completely on board with changing their behavior before any treatment can be effective. But when people are ready to start healing, plenty of high-quality treatment options are available, with the foremost among these being those at WhiteSands Treatment Centers.

Individualized, Comprehensive Treatment

At WhiteSands, we aim to treat the whole person through a combination of individual and group counseling, patient education, family therapy, alternative treatments, and appropriate medications administered by highly qualified medical professionals. Because every drug addiction requires a different chemical dependency treatment, we will work with you to create a fully customized program to fit your specific needs. This personalized program will address every aspect of your addiction and give you the resources you need to live a healthy life after rehab.

Safe, Supervised Detox

An inpatient medical detox is typically necessary when treating a drug or alcohol addiction, and this is how many patients enrolled in a chemical dependency program at WhiteSands will begin. At WhiteSands, each patient is monitored by our trained physicians during the detox process. With a medically supervised detox, you can get the drug or alcohol out of your system as safely and comfortably as possible before proceeding to the next stage of treatment.

Knowledge Is Power

Getting sober is about much more than simply not using drugs; it is about changing the way you think and operate on an everyday level. During your chemical dependency program, a member of our counseling team will always be available to talk to you and help you work through your feelings. One of the key tools we used to help treat substance abuse disorders is cognitive behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy is great for helping an addict learn coping skills that will be vital for dealing with everyday life after leaving rehab. This type of therapy helps patients deal with the compulsion to use drugs by addressing the physical, social, and psychological aspects of their condition and helping them form alternative coping strategies.
